Indiana State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service meets to discuss possible changes for entry to funeral director practice.

At their December 2022 meeting, the Indiana State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service, at the urgence of IFDA, began the process of reviewing the path of entry into practice for Indiana funeral service. In August of 2022, after several years of workforce study, IFDA petitioned the State Board to review Indiana’s nearly 40-year-old entry-to-practice model for 21st century relevancy and to seek opportunities to improve and make more efficient. This petition included reviewing the role/relevancy of the National Board Exam in developing the next generation of licensed funeral service practitioners.
